RE: New truck batteries

"I'd be hard pressed to buy an Optima unless it was the only option, in a pinch" I had RedTops in my 98 12V. They were junk. So much so that the Costco Mgr gave me my $ back and bought two Kirkland/Johnson controls and they went for many years.

RE: New truck batteries

Not due for batteries on the 2016 yet, but when the 2001 needed batteries I chose to get from the local Ram dealer OEM as many were reporting getting 7+ years out of them. I will see when the current OEM's start to fail. I replaced the batteries 9/29/2012 at 253,050 miles, I sold it 6/30/2019 at 315,000 miles. During the last six months the truck would set for a month between starts, fired up every time. My Son and I ordered our 15's and received them 2/15. Around 2/19 he replaced his batteries they were failing and causing electronic issues. I replaced mine at 4.5 years because I wanted to replace them when "I" wanted to. Many are only getting 4-5 years on the newer RAM batteries.

RE: My Amazing 12-year old battery...

I replaced the batteries in my 2005 Ram for the first time in May of 2018. I took delivery of the truck in March 2005. Is 13+ years a good run or what? Not the case any longer! I replaced mine on my 15 RAM at 4.5 years. Too many die at 4-5 years so it made sense to just get new ones when "I" wanted to. With all the electronics weird things happen when the batteries are not 100% on the newer trucks.

RE: good Sam VS AARP.

From the day I turned 50 the AARP mail started. Politely asked in return mail several times to quit sending me their junk. Did not work, mail kept coming. Well I did a lot of Medical clinics where I removed sheet lead. I filled the postage paid envelope and asked again to please stop. Guess when it cost them a bunch of money they got the hint!

RE: Freightliner M2 106 Sport Chassis (tow weight)

I can tell you I can tow that RV and be within axle and GCVWR with my 15 DRW RAM. So based on that, carry on!

RE: My Amazing 12-year old battery...

DR mower I bought in 1999 had a "LONG" brand sealed battery, I replaced it at the beginning of last Summer. Never removed or disconnected it. Not bad 20 years!

RE: More tire pressure monitor discussion.

I've been towing RV's for 50-years and never had a flat, nor a problem with a tire. I do change my tires often and rather spend my limited $$$ on new Goodyear tires than a TPMS. If I ever get a flat.... I will stop and change it myself. I am with you buddy!

RE: Double Towing Length Laws] For me personally i would never tow two couplers like pictured above. That MH in the wind will have a hard time by it's self staying in it's own lane! I think I am about the same length but with the 5er and ball connection my setup is FAR more stable going down the road even in high winds.

RE: dedicated charging station for phones, wifi, tablets

I added a station to my Boat. One 12V and two USB's.

RE: Flipping Axle

May be better off adding risers to the bottom of the frame? I know different suspension.

RE: More tire pressure monitor discussion.

"More tire pressure monitor discussion." No rule against another thread being posted but I have a "serious question", what purpose is this post? From reading it certainly could have been added to the TPMS thread you are acknowledging in your threads title.

RE: Trailer Tire Speeding Rating??

For whatever it is worth, I have been using the Endurance tires for the last few years, Load Range D (which is excessive for my trailer). After 20,000 miles, I am very happy with them. But I almost never go over 65 mph. My trailer came with the Endurance tires and I am one of those that believes LT tires are much higher quality tires (because they are). I was going to change my tires out right away, and thought I might as well see how they do. I am going into my third year with them, and don't see a reason to change them yet. I am actually now considering replacing them with more Endurance tires when the time comes since they are working so well. They are NOT your average ST tires! You have just proven that to be true.

RE: Plug in truck bed or use plug in bumper for 5th wheel

Hi All, My 2016 Dodge truck came with a plug in the bed and one on the bumper. I use the in bed one for the 5th wheel because it keep the electrical cord from coming loose. Jim2007 How did you get a 201 Dodge Diesel, they quit making them in 2008 and removed all labels that said Dodge in 2011 or so. Last year was 2012. It said Dodge in one place on my Dads on the center of dash on the black recessed area for sunglasses. It was there for legal reasons. Starting 2013 Dodge was no longer. It was then officially RAM.

RE: Break away cable

The breakaway box is either attached with a pop river or a screw. It’s designed to rotate to where the cable will pull the pin. Only issue is the cable is attached to the hitch handle.

RE: Plug in truck bed or use plug in bumper for 5th wheel

I use the one on the bumper simply because it's easier to get to. I couldn't easily reach a plug in the bed without lowering the gate, and the less work I can get by with the better. Never had any issues with the plug over the 5th wheel tailgate. I hadn’t either until........ Nice to have choices and personal reasons for doing what we do. Kinda like me not using TPMS. :B

RE: Plug in truck bed or use plug in bumper for 5th wheel

Used to use bumper plug on my 98. Draped cable over tailgate. All was well until in hot weather and cord draped farther down behind tailgate. Took a turn and ripped the cord out of the pin box junction box. Fixed damage then added bed plug
